Can you believe it? Baking Mischief is officially one year old today! Last year on December 1st, I posted my first recipe, Butterscotch Shortbread Thumbprint Cookies, and before I knew it, an entire year flew by.
Thank you for all your support in Baking Mischief’s first year. Thanks for your comments, your emails, your clicks, and your time. You’ve made this year an absolute blast!
Just for fun, here are a few Baking Mischief stats from its first year:
- The most popular recipe on the site is the Butter and Garlic Green Beans. People on Pinterest love this recipe, and I don’t blame them. It’s one of my faves too.
- Speaking of Pinterest, the first Baking Mischief recipe to reach the 100k repin mark was my S’mores Cupcakes, which totally makes sense, because they are exactly the sort of recipe I would have pinned before starting a food blog.
- And, the recipe on the blog I love most that gets the least traffic is Hannibal’s Lomo Saltado. I totally understand why people don’t want to try a recipe from a (fictional) cannibal’s kitchen, but I totally wish they would, because french fries + beef & rice = AMAZING. 😉
Something New is Coming…
To celebrate Baking Mischief’s first birthday, I’m starting a free email newsletter as a way to better stay in touch with you lovely readers! That means once a week, newsletter subscribers will get a dose of Baking Mischief delivered right to their inboxes with a round up of the week’s recipes, an exclusive preview of recipes to come, and probably some ramblings from me. 😉
When you sign up for the newsletter, you’ll also receive this free mini e-cookbook, A Week of Easy Meals for Two. It has seven of my favorite easy meals for two, including some of the most popular recipes from the site that I’ve re-scaled to serve a pair.
